Pregnant and Self-Quarantined...

Hey guys! What a weird time right? As I write this, our county (Which is the 3rd biggest in the state of CA) has one confirmed case of COVID-19 and there are bound to be more. Either way, I'm in the business of staying as healthy as I possibly can and keeping those around me healthy too. For me, this means staying home, attending meetings online, having everything delivered, face-timing coffee dates with girlfriends and spending my entire allowance on fabric and sewing supplies. I've got a growing bump to clothe, and a baby boy on the way, who, right now only has a few band onesies to wear (a Metallica one and two Ramones ones).  So... I thought I'd share my upcoming plans with you all!

A sweet friend from church gifted me with these SUPER precious patterns from Tiny Design Co. Can you even believe how cute these are? I really can't wait to tackle them. ALSO. Kids/Baby clothing is generally a lot easier/faster to sew that adult projects, so I'm excited to whip up a bunch! The other great thing about the patterns is that they are all PDFs so as our little guy gets bigger, I can keep printing them in the size I need! You can click through the picture to see all of their beautiful things.

I have a few maternity patterns that I plan making several in different colors as well. But I will say this: I'm for sure making this dress in a bright pink. I couldn't get enough of the fashion in the Netflix show "The Politician". This pink dress that Lucy Boynton wears is my favorite look of all them. This vintage  Butterick pattern has that vibe a little bit with the drop waist, also its level "very easy". I'm always down for a very easy pattern.

Women's maternity patterns are really difficult to find. Modern ones tend to be super clingy and stretchy with lots of wrap looks. While I totally understand the thought behind it, but it's just not for me. I know I'll look like a blimp, but flowy is more my vibe. I really went back and forth about whether or not I wanted to attempt a jumpsuit while pregnant, but after seeing these from Hatch, I knew I had to give this look a go. This vintage Simplicity pattern is gonna need a little tweaking, it's VERY wide... even for maternity. But it'll get the job done, and in a linen, it'll be light enough to wear in the summer.


What about you? Do you have plans for saving your sanity while staying at home? If you've been wanting take up sewing, there's probably no better time! I think we can all agree that we're gonna need activities that will keep us from defaulting to our phones or computer screens, and there is only so much Netflix a human can watch. I'd love to see your creative projects! Make sure you check back here for updates and other fun quarantine crafts!!
